A Prayer for the Consecration of our Church
God our heavenly Father, make the door of our Church wide enough to receive all who need human love and a Father’s heavenly care, and narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and lack of love; here may the tempted find help, the sorrowful receive comfort, the careless be awakened to repentance, and the penitent be assured of your mercy; and here may all your children renew their strength and go on their way in hope and joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Mass with the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick
Every last Thursday in the month there is an opportunity for those who are sick to partake of this sacrament. The practice of being anointed with oil as a powerful prayer for strengthening and healing dates back to the earliest Church. Scripture bears witness to this when it says: “Are there any who are sick among you? Let them send for the priests of the Church and let the priests pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick persons, and the Lord will raise them up; and if they have committed any sins their sins will be forgiven them.
